2/5/78 (already mentioned) and
4/13/83. This one never gets mentioned when favorite S>F's get discussed and I'll never know why. I've loved it since first hearng a crude AUD of it back in '84. Jer takes a never ending solo on Scarlet that is spot on.

Absolutely. Couldn't agree more. This Austin one is not only a keeper but a far more pleasing recording than Pat Gym.
OK, so we're on the same page. Try this one.

This solo is (again) very fluid and unforced, flowing like a ranbow out of Jerry's rig. And, my favorite thing on a good Scarlet solo, it just WONT stop!
The boys tag along faithfully, nipping at Jerry's heels like a litter of playful pups. Sweet. And the bridge jam over to FOTM is also fine.
